Football Tour to Porto
BTEC Sport students at St Ambrose Barlow Sixth Form visited Porto in the Easter Break, to train with the Academy coaches of the city’s famous football team.
The football tour took the students to FC Porto’s stadium, the Estadio Do Dragao, where they received top class coaching from the club’s full time academy coaches. They took part in training drills and sessions and had the opportunity to test their newly acquired skills with matches against similar standard local opposition.
They also had the chance to see the sights of Porto. The trip concluded with a final tour dinner at authentic Portuguese restaurant, in the heart of the city, on the banks of the Douro River.
